The University of Windsor's Board of Governors announced the appointment of Dr. Robert Gordon as seventh President and Vice-Chancellor, following a rigorous search led by a committee that included Senate and Board of Governors representation. Dr. Gordon's appointment is effective September 1, and follows the retirement of President Alan Wildeman June 30, 2018. Dr. Douglas Kneale has served as Interim President during the past year.

Alexander McLeod
Short story selected for O. Henry Prize

A short story by UWindsor creative writing alumnus Alexander MacLeod BA '95 will be published in the centenary edition of the  O. Henry Prize Stories anthology. The work was originally published in the literary magazine  Granta.

Dr. MacLeod, a professor of English and Atlantic Canada Studies at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, was one of  20 authors to win the American honour, which recognizes excellence in short fiction.

Elizabeth Dillon
Nursing student recognized for professional practice

Throughout her academic career, UWindsor student Elizabeth Dillon has demonstrated a passion for nursing. That passion was rewarded recently with a provincial award for excellence in professional nursing practice from the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing (COUPN). 

In announcing Dillon's win, COUPN spokesperson said Dillon "exemplifies how to put nursing theory into practice" and "has demonstrated leadership and a passion for nursing far beyond her years."

Convocation memories

The first session of The University's 111th Convocation, marked the installation of Mary Jo Haddad as the eighth Chancellor of the University of Windsor. 
Dr. Haddad BScN '84, LLD '05, former president and CEO of the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), serves as the titular head of the University and confers all degrees and diplomas on behalf of the Senate.

Memories of convocation are indelibly marked in the minds of the University's newest alumni and their families. Videos of each session are available for viewing on-line or for purchase.

Michael Murphy
Alumnus suffers the Blues no more

A UWindsor alumnus had a once-in-a-lifetime experience hoisting the Stanley Cup after the St. Louis Blues won its first-ever National Hockey League championship.  Michael Murphy BHK '91 has been the team's chiropractor since 1996 and shared its victory over the Boston Bruins. The Blues had been the oldest NHL team never to have won the cup.

Murphy is also an alumni speaker, sharing his achievements and career-related journey with students in the Faculty of Human Kinetics - this moment will probably feature in his future speeches!
Author leaves no stone unturned in search of the truth

Between 1945 and 1973 approximately 350,000 unmarried Canadian mothers were persuaded, coerced or forced to give up their babies for adoption. Author Nadean Stone BA '73 was one of those babies. In her debut novel No Stone Unturned she writes about her 44-year search for her birth mother. 

Raised with no electricity or indoor plumbing, from the moment she understands the word adoption, she vows to find her. With no records of her birth, she battles against the frustration of bureaucracy and the unbearable pain of many heartbreaks.
